Fiji event cancelled

Fiji event cancelled

Tourism Fiji was concentrating on getting the last international trade buyers out of the country yesterday following the ‘dicult decision’ to cancel this week’s Fijian Tourism Expo.

At the time of going to press Tourism Fiji was not in a position to talk about any alternative events or future famils to make up ground from the cancellation.

The organisation says in a press statement that the call was made on Sunday with the safety of all delegates and partners in mind.

This was due to the impending serious weather conditions and the Fiji Meteorology Service advice of a tropical cyclone alert for Fiji coinciding with the event dates.

‘Tourism Fiji shares the disappointment of our industry, partners and participants that were looking forward to our annual expos and are grateful their support and understanding of the decision and that safety of all involved is the paramount concern for Tourism Fiji.'
